11 to 14. At the latter event, MacDonald proved Canadian content wasn't a cultural curse as he showed plenty of savvy in weaving a piquant political sketch of Mulf oney, Turner and Broadbent in a Grade 2 arithmetic class. He also explained why NASA chose Canadian Marc Garneau for the space shuttle: "They needed a subject for their motion-sickness study, and it was either a Canadian or a chimp." Meanwhile, another crazy Canuck, Craig "Frenchie" McFarlane, takes to the Comedy Nest stage this weekend. Showtimes are 9 and 11:15 p.m. tonight and tomorrow evening and 8:30 on Sunday.
In the Refreshing Rock Group Title Department: Jump in the Pool is set to paddle and crawl at Station 10 the bar tonight and tomorrow evening.

Trinidad and the one and only Alistair McAlistair. By BILL BROWNSTEIN Special to The Cazette Singer Johnnie Ray can thank his lucky stars that he once crossed paths with Sophie Tucker in Portland, Ore, It was Tucker who told him: "If you want to make it in show business, get out of Portland!" That fateful meeting took place in 1949; and Ray not only got out of Portland in a jiff, but made it in a big way in showbiz as well. At last count, Ray's rendering of his hit tune Cry had sold more than 21 Vz million records. Ray appears at Le Stage Supper Club at La Diligence, Sept. 18 to 21.
Downstairs at La Diligence, the sparkling Fats Waller musical revue Ain't Misbehavin is now into its fifth month and shows no signs of slowing down. The dynamic quartet of Ranee Lee, Michelle Sweeney, Dorian Joe Clark and Anthony Sherwood blend effortlessly and wondrously on harmonies as well as hoofin' routines. In all, 31 memorable Waller classics, including the title tune as well as Honeysuckle Rose and It's a Sin to Tell a Lie, are hissed, cooed, belted and boomed to the rocksteady piano accompaniment of Ari Snyder. The curtain rises at 8:45 p.m., Thursdays to Sundays. Back by popular demand at the Portage in the Bonaventure Hilton is Area Code, the high-energy funk-and-soul combo from New York City.
The group performs Tuesdays through Saturdays until Sept. 13. Cover charge is $6 on weekdays, $8 on weekends. Celtic music fans, take note. The ROMANCE "A gross-your-eyes-out horror movie that is also the year's most poignant romance." Richard Corliss.

A good part of the film is giverl over to the nine days of rehearsal on I the super-elegant premises of the" Chateau do Courson in France. bringing together top jazz musicians and blending their style with his own artistic vision, Sting hopes to do something about the sad state of, rock 'n' roll: "Pop music is dead; it'J reactionary and racist," the school teacher asserts in the course. of a monologue that's unusually thoughtful by rock 'n' roll standards. He doesn't actually end up revolu tionizing the music world; after all7 there's nothing all that new abou "fusion" jazz and Sting's lyrics are not exactly pop music's answer ta Das Kapital.

By ERUCE BAILEY Gazette Film Critic Just in case we can't figure it out all by our little selves, rock superstar Sting (formerly of The Police) tells us from inside Bring on the Night what's so special about Bring on the Night.
There are lots of "rocumentaries" about bands in their last days (among them Let It Be, Last Waltz); even more about pop stars at their peak. But Bring On the Night offers something different a record of a band getting their act together for their first gig. Of course, this is not just any band.

And it didn't hurt their public profile any when the group later, managed to boost its word-of-mouth success with the release of the hit album, Dream of the Blue Turtles. Still, they might have had trouble getting distribution if it weren't for the clout of director Miehael Apted (Coal Miner's Daughter) behind it.
